The special event also includes free stickers for all young riders, and deals and discounts for children and adults!

With 60 Routes and 5,500 bus stops, there are so many fun places MCTS can take you and your children.

While kids ride for free on September 23rd, adults can also save some money when they use the MCTS M•CARD to pay for fares.
